UPPER MARLBORO, Md., July 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ComRent International, a global leader in load bank solutions for testing and commissioning mission-critical power generating equipment, today announced the Precision 18kW, a new rack mounted load bank with a unique resistor design, remote control, load transfer capabilities and additional innovative features for testing data center facilities.
The Precision will be unveiled at the DataCenter Dynamics Webscale trade show at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA on July 19, 2016. With expanded capabilities including remote control and monitoring up to 100 load banks from a single remote, a patented load transfer from primary to redundant power feeds methodology and hardware and a patented delta/wye configurable switch for two operating modes; the Precision is designed to be the most comprehensive, safe and flexible data center commissioning load bank on the market today.
"The future of data center load bank commissioning is improving thermal and mechanical operations, and at the heart of ComRent's Precision is a unique and innovative resistor design that positively reduces airflow requirements," said Doug May, ComRent president and CEO. "The Precision is truly a no-compromise approach to thermal and mechanical validation that was well received during product trials."
Additional Precision 18kW features and benefits include:
Reduced installation time with built-in guide pins and locking mechanism, minimizing preparation work, installation time and labor.
The patent-pending passive airflow baffle eliminates unwanted mixing of hot and cold air between aisles when the unit is off, providing stable aisle temperatures during commissioning.
The temperature feedback loop allows commissioners to select desired output temperature and the Precision will configure the system's fan speed and/or load to reach desired goals.
All Precision 18kW Load Banks have been extensively tested by Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide.
